§ Viscount Weir
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When a decision is announced as to which Royal Dockyard will undertake the refit of Trident submarines, whether the Ministry of Defence will publish the financial comparisons on which the choice was made.
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Viscount Cranborne)
Once we have announced our proposals for future arrangements for ship refitting, we will release as much information as possible, subject to the constraints of commercial confidentiality and security.
